The Body Shop Metal Lip Liquid & Matte Lip Liquid // Review and Swatches!

Hi guys!  How are you?  Getting excited for Christmas?  I know I am!  I’m opening my beauty advent calendar every day and it’s so exciting 🙂  But that’s not what today’s post is about.  Today I’m reviewing The Body Shop Metal Lip Liquid and Matte Lip Liquid lippies for you!  Hang about for hand and lip swatches, plus a review of how long each one lasted on the lips.

I picked these beauties up when I went to The Body Shop Christmas event, where they launched their Play for Peace campaign.  I’d seen swatches on their Instastories and the magpie in me needed to get my hands on them!  I chose the Metal Lip Liquids in Plum Titanium and Fuchsia Chrome; and the Matte Lip Liquid in Tokyo Lotus.

Best of Natural Makeup & Beauty: My Picks!

Hey guys, hope you’re well?  This post has been a long time in the making!  I was sent/bought these products quite a few months ago but a combination of bad health and wanting to test them thoroughly slowed things down!  I happened to be sent a few natural makeup bits from two different companies around the same time.  It made me wonder how more natural products compared to my tried and true makeup favourites.  As a vegetarian and someone who cares about the environment and animals, you’d think I’d be a bit more ‘in the know’ about natural beauty products.  I’m not, but I definitely plan to find out a bit more, after testing out these bits and pieces!

L-R: Bella Vi Foundation, Bella Vi Primer, Benecos Lipstick in Pink Rose and Benecos Eyeshadow Brush

I was very kindly sent the Bella Vi primer and foundation, and the Benecos lipstick, for review purposes.  As always, despite this, my views are always honest and wholly my own.  I bought the Benecos brush myself.
